Catering by Design was pretty great! Most importantly, their food was wonderful. I've ruined chicken forever for all of our guests (it was stuffed with apricot & goat cheese, AMAZING!)! I also still dream about the meatball hors d'oeuvres we had! We had a great experience at the tasting and they made accommodations to my food sensitivities and personal preferences. The service at the wedding was good for the most part; they were attentive to my groom & I. However there was some confusion when it came to the cake, they handed it out to immediate family only, so everyone else was a little confused as to how to get cake. I also felt they cleared the food a little quickly, there was so much going on and so many people to greet, I wish they'd left out our food a little longer. They were pretty great though! Really Good Food!

Catering by Design was wonderful from start to finish. When we were researching caterers we were surprised by how unresponsive some were considering we were looking to pay someone for a profitable service! Catering by Design stood out immediately and provided great customer service from beginning to end. They are very responsive, professional, and they provide excellent food and service. At the wedding the staff was on top of everything and it all went so smoothly. All of our guests loved their meals and had an awesome time at the wedding. Catering by Design is an excellent vendor for catering and design assistance as well!

While my husband and I did not get the opportunity to have the wedding we so feverishly planned due to unforeseen circumstances, I wanted to take the opportunity to write about the fabulous vendors we had the pleasure of working with anyways. When we booked with Denver Botanic Gardens, we decided on using their preferred caterer, Catering by Design. I had read their raving reviews for not just their food but their professionalism and flexibility, and I understand why! They allow you to design your own menu no matter how quirky, which makes your meal completely unique to your wedding. The cost was quite reasonable for letting you venture so far out of the cookie cutter catering options that are typically offered. And their communication was amazing! They were so quick to respond with even the most strenuous of tasks we required of them. When it came down to the possibility of a postponement or even cancellation of our wedding, they were very understanding and even allowed us to transfer our contract to a cousin to use for her wedding instead. Even though we did not get to actually utilize their services, we did get to try their food and it was quite tasty! I highly recommend them!

I highly recommend hiring Catering by Design for your wedding. My now husband and I were amazed at how easy they were throughout the entire planning process. Jen was absolutely fabulous and brought a lot of creativity to our menu.

The night of the wedding they exceeded our expectations. We are still hearing from our guests how amazed they were by the food.

I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was with Catering by Design. All I can do is encourage other couples to hire them without any hesitation to make their big day amazing!

Catering By Design was by far the easiest, most accommodating vendor we had the pleasure of working with. We couldn't have been happier with the level of service and professionalism we experienced throughout the whole process. Our main contact, Jennifer Quam, was a delight to work with and walked us through every step, from deciding appetizers and main courses, to finalizing rental orders. She made everything seem effortless, leaving us at ease on the big day knowing that all the details would be taken care of.

Our food was simply divine! The guests could not stop commenting on how delicious each dish was. We even had a plate of appetizers waiting for us at our table, since we missed the cocktail hour. A full plate of food was served to us at our seats, even though the dinner was buffet style. It really made us feel fantastic to have such great service.

At the end of the night, I was worried about tear down, but when I returned to the reception room, everything was cleaned, wrapped up, and stored in it's appropriate place. The day-of contact was unbelievably friendly and made sure to ask us about any outstanding items we might want to take home. Overall, the attention to detail, food and flexibility were all spot on. We would GLADLY recommend CBD to any bride looking for the perfect caterer.

For the most part, I really enjoyed working with Catering by Design. Our day of contact was very helpful and responsive to requests and the food was quite good. They were flexible and helpful in designing our menu to fit our tastes. The day of there were a few snafus, I left directions for how I wanted our reception venue set up, and then I arrived to find centerpieces in the wrong place, table cards not put out, and general disorganization. They were all minor things that probably only a bride would notice, and once my sister mentioned it to CBD they changed everything back quickly. However, it added a layer of stress to my reception that I didn't want to deal with. I would still highly recommend CBD based on price, responsiveness, and quality of food, but would urge brides to be very explicit about how you'd like your venue to look so that there are no confusions on the day of.
